Grammy winner Daniil Trifonov presents a cycle of Sergei Rachmaninov's highly virtuosic Piano Concertos. Recorded with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra, the orchestra most closely associated with the composer with which Rachmaninov himself famously recorded the set of concerti over 80 years ago.

"Trifonov is wonderfully alive to [the Fourth's] mercurial piano writing, achieving astonishing crystalline delicacy in the elaborate filigree passage work and negotiating unexpected juxtapositions of mood…Nézet-Séguin and the superbly responsive Philadelphia Orchestra follow the soloist's every interpretative nuance." BBC Music

"From the huge sonority of the C minor concerto's opening chords, the pianist shows that he means business, but it is the astounding delicacy of his virtuosity in the piu vivo section - recalling Horowitz - that marks him out as a soloist of the first rank in this work. He is no less commanding in the more "jazzy, mechanical" (Trifonov's words) G minor concerto" The Sunday Times

"Trifonov is a gifted pianist, the Philadelphians have the music in their blood and Nézet-Séguin has an eye for detail and careful phrasing…Overall, this is another fine, well-recorded addition to the lengthy discography but one which neither astonished nor moved me." Gramophone

"These are performances of such musical awareness, tonal variety and dazzling virtuosity that even the Second, one of the most popular of all piano concertos, has every trace of routine and over-familiarity stripped away. Trifonov has the gift of making something compelling out of the least attention-seeking piano lines...the woodwind playing is superb, but it's the simple eloquence of Trifonov's playing that constantly draws the ear." The Guardian
